Verse:

C
my dewy-eyed disney bride, what has tried
                             Am
swapping your blood with formaldehyde?
G
monsters?
C
whiskey-plied voices cried fratricide!
                                Am
jesus don't you know that you could've died, you should've died
          G                                               C
with the monsters that talk, monsters that walk the earth

Chorus:

               Am                               C
and she's got red lipstick and a bright pair of shoes
               G                                Am
and she's got knee high socks, what to cover a bruise
              F                         C
she's got an old death kit she's been meaning to use
         G                          Am                     
she's got blood in her eyes, in her eyes for you
          F     G                  C
she's got blood.. in her eyes for you

(then part of the g riff comes in a bit before the actual riff)
B String [---3h5--3-1---]

G Riff x3
Transition Riff

Verse:

C                    
certain fads, stripes and plaids, singles ads
                                  Am
they run you hot and cold like a rheostat, i mean a thermostat
        G                                        C
so you bite on a towel, hope it won't hurt too bad
C
my dewy-eyed disney bride, what has tried
                             Am
swapping your blood with formaldehyde?
      G                                               C
what monsters that talk, monsters that walk the earth

Chorus:

             Am                           C
and she says i like long walks and sci-fi movies
    G                                  Am
if you're six foot tall and east coast bred
 F                       C
some lonely night we can get together
     G                  Am
and i'm gonna tie your wrists with leather
     F           G               C
and drill a tiny hole into your head 
           F           G
I'm gonna drill a tiny hole.. into your

C Riff x3

end on C

I prefer the conciseness of your sheet to the other... Just transposed it to D myself since I hate capos, but, easy-peasy... Good work!
